Fairy Charlotte

Happy Tuesday!  Hope all is well with everyone! Today I have a card that just makes me happy! This is one of Whiff of Joy’s older Alison Action images but it is brand new to me! With the gloomy and rainy weather that we have been having, I needed something to cheer me up and the color palette I used on my card was the just the trick!

This week’s  Stamp & Create Product Spotlight Sale is:
Whiff of Joy stamps which are on sale 25% off

Charlotte Fairy

I colored Fairy Charlotte up in shades of pinks, oranges and yellows. I love this color combo especially with the hit of green from the leaves! I cut her out with my Spellbinders circles making sure to leave the tips of her wings out of the frame. I then masked Charlotte and the flower and air-brushed the background in.  I used some of the same markers that I had used during the coloration of Charlotte and just they blended so nicely together to create a soft background.

The papers are some really old pieces left over from a retired Stampin’ Up collection that I have had for ages now. It was fun to try to piece the smaller scraps together for the card.

I made the flower! Yes, I did! IRL it is a better match to my papers but it is not showing that well in the photos. I used a Whiff of Joy metal nested flower II die to cut out the flower pieces and then I added some Twinkling H20 in Coral  and then spritzed them with water and scrunched them up. Sounds so technical doesn’t it? LOL! While the pieces were still wet, I carefully un-crumbled them and let them dry. The final touch was a spritz with Studio Calico’s Mr Huey’s White mist. Love this stuff! I also added some Basic Grey pearl flourishes to embellish

Here you can see where I added some of the Coral H20s to the flowers and wings of the image. It is so pretty!
